Flaws of Two-piece Gutter Guards and Gutter Cover Systems
Most two-piece gutters consist of an ordinary open gutter with a gutter cover or gutter guard installed above it, or it refers to a gutter with a gutter screen installed on top of it, attached either to the gutter itself or to the roof.
By definition, a two-piece gutter guard is not fully seamless and leaks can occur. A two-piece system usually consists of a seamless open gutter bottom which holds and channels the water AND a separate gutter guard or gutter cover, which is attached to the roof and hangs over the gutter. Most of these gutter covers or gutter guards come in three-foot sections and are not seamless.
In addition, the gutter and gutter guard or gutter cover, are separate, which makes the fascia and soffit vulnerable to water damage. By installing a gutter guard or gutter cover under the shingles of your roof, debris and leaves that do not slide over the gutter cover, can become trapped, causing build-up and clogs. Plus, two-piece gutter guards and gutter covers can detach in high winds, and their design makes them weak and vulnerable to damage from ladders and tree limbs. But not LeafGuard®!
